Woodwork challenge: Polish: 'Polishing His Mettle' : Kortirion

Title: Polishing His Mettle
Author: Kortirion
Character: Rohirrim
Rating: G
Source: Pre-Ring War
Disclaimer: Tolkien created this world, Kortirion created this momentary glimpse.

‘There’s more worth to that lad than polishing benches with his backside…’
The old quartermaster was noted for his blunt speech, even amongst the Riders of the Mark, who prized free speech, he was held to be… forthright.

The Arms-master spluttered into his beer when he heard this pronouncement, but on reflection, yes… young Thorongil should be given a command – he was capable, he inspired and praised with the right mix of good humour and good sense. He could tell a shirker from one in genuine distress… Yes, he had true horse-sense… and he wasn’t bad with the men either!
